GROWLING SWAN, 7th JANUARY, 2019.
“With the shackles off it was Colin’s time to Shine.”
We had Seventeen golfers committed to travel out, alas with 3 pullouts it took us down to fourteen, still not a bad total for a Monday’s golf.
Off to Mt Shadow for a day of pain under suffering. We set out from the Blue Tees about 6200m (a bit long for me, but I’m not playing) Not one complaint regarding the condition of the courses, all was saying that it was in real good nic, Fairways mowed and tidy , greens ran true and bunkers were clean and raked as well. All in all the opportunity for some good scores one would think, or was it!
There appeared to be more people playing today, generally speaking we see very few on the course but today was the exception, we actually got held up on a few occasions!
Fourteen golfers let us play the solitary flight only but as always we were playing all six novelties.!
It was to be Colin Stielow with the shackles off that took the bull by the horns and came out of Kissy’s shadow to return with a good score of 34 pts. Second and only two shots behind was Mashi Kaneta and finishing third was his playing partner Patrick Poussier another stroke behind.
WINNERS from TREASURE HILL.
1st Colin Stielow (25) 34pts.

Back at the Swan we welcomed back Brendan Cope who we have not seen for a few weeks. And no farewells as far as I was aware. If we ever forget you in the “Welcomes or Farewells it will be an oversight and not a deliberate move!
The Viper set D-For from his chain to collect for the needy of Pattaya. We give thanks to those who choose to give. The Golfers and Punters from The Growling Swan are thanked for the generous efforts! Viper you are doing a great job and Alex on his return next week will have to watch out! There is just one thing Mark can you please stop threatening people when it comes to D-For!
For serious golfing with a dash of fun and compulsory sledging, the Growling Swan welcomes golfers of all persuasions, be it young or old, male or female. We generally play on Mondays and Thursdays at any one of the fine courses around Pattaya. Please contact Peter Grey for bookings or any information on 086 1503 086.
